Subject: 1st set brent
Just saw set 1 on youtube and the band is definitely in a zone, controlled but expansive, spot-on cooperation in the jams. The Brent solos that most impressed me were in desolation row and foolish heart. Bobby just missed one verse of DR, verse 3, now the moon is almost hidden and the stars are beginning to hide.... Set 2 awaits.

Subject: Brent
Review below is hard to follow, great show. Brent definitely kicks it into overdrive midway thru his Walkin' solo. And once more midway thru Louie Louie. Him signaling to Jerry with the midi Sax is epic, and proof he could light the show on fire. What a beast!

Subject: Run for the Roses
Three weeks before the Kentucky Derby. The "Run for the Roses" Grateful Dead in town to play most every song that pertained to Roses, or even might sound like Rose (Desolation Row). Maybe it is just me, but you can actually hear when this show kicks into gear....during Brent's second round of soloing during Walkin' Blues. After that point, it's ON!!!! Something happened, and it doesn't necessarily require chemicals to perceive...According to jboyaquar (or Brother Superior) in a previous review, the Kentucky people are "tools", apparantly called that because someone cheers after Jerry mentions NYC in Ramble on Rose...I don't know, maybe somebody there was FROM NYC? Brother Superior also couldn't understand why they would play Louie, Louie....perhaps because they were in LOUIE-VILLE? It was immediately apparent to all of us dumb Kentuckians. I wonder if Ky natives such as Hunter S. Thompson or, who is that guy, um, Owsley, would appreciate his ignorant generalization...Anyway, back to the show. Just a fantastic batch of red hearts & flowers in this basket! From the pre-show parking lot festivities to the walk out, this one was special.

Subject: Let Freedom Ring
Unusual Spring Tour in '89, as there were no northeast venues. I saw the Greensboro's on 3/30 & 3/1, which were fun.

This is a nice show with generally good, albeit unspectacular, tunes that are well-played. Very good sound quality. Definitely worth a listen!

Subject: Beatiful Recording!
Easily the most 3-D and widest S-T-E-R-E-O effect Audience recording that I have heard on the Archive. Worth the download! Danny Thompson had his sh!t together...please check out his other FOB/MOTB offering of 7-2-89 Foxboro / Sullivan Stadium recording. This is superior quality!
